Funded! This project was successfully funded on January 31, 2010.


The town of Edgewater begins to unravel when someone begins to "murder" the local pleasurebots. Creators Ryan and Zandria want you in on the action.

Who doesn't like a good, old-fashioned dystopian/robots-vs.-humans story?

I've been wanting to produce the comic mini-series Edgewater for a long time but have never had the financial backing to pay somebody to illustrate. That is, until I found out about Kickstarter. Your pledges will enable us (mostly Zandria) the security to finish writing and illustrating the first issue - a 45-page introduction to the disconnected town of Edgewater and how they deal when robots begin to kill off.

Bypassing digital means to give the book a different look than any comic you've seen, Zandria uses time-consuming mediums of graphite, ink, watercolor, and acrylics (so far). Each panel takes hours, but the result is worth it. Since she's just dusted her heels of a crummy old job, some of your pledges will go to feeding her and heating her apartment during the cold, Utah-winter months. For more examples of her greatness, go to her website:

Pledges will also go to printing costs (also, if anyone has any info/recommendations about small publishing houses that do such things with integrity, I'd love to hear about it).

Thanks again for all your support! Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions or you just want to chat.

    We'll write you into the story. Yep, you. We'll get your picture and come up with a big, juicy role for you to play in the town of Edgewater. It'll totally be like when you fill out a Mad Libs so funny that you spend the entire day with your mind blown, but instead of "adjective" it'll be "person" and that person will be you.
